This demo illustrates the connection between KIMEME, Siemens NX and Ansys. The aim of this demo is to determine the optimal aspect ratio for a tank subject to the action of a given pressure.

The geometry of the tank is defined and modified by Siemens NX. Von Mises stress value is calculated by means of FEM analysis, carried on by Ansys.

Tank radius [100…220] mm

The height of the tank is calculated in order to keep the volume of the tank constant

Minimize Von Mises stress
